Van Halen Reunion With Sammy Hagar Not Going To Happen!

Van Halen Reunion With Sammy Hagar Not Going To Happen!

SHARE

Sorry folks all the rumors you are hearing about the possibility of Sammy returning to the band for a reunion tour is not going to happen any time soon according to sources close to the band.

The rumors started flying around after Sammy Tweeted Eddie a birthday wish seen here:

Then like wildfire the rumors of a reunion involving Sammy Hagar spread across the web. To make it worse there was a recent interview on the Daily Bulletin talking about it from Sammy’s point of view as you can see here:
Source: Daily Bulletin
One subject Hagar is not comfortable talking about is Van Halen. When asked what he would do if the group called him to come back, he said he wasn’t sure.

Hagar: “My favorite thing to say without biting my own tongue is no comment,” Hagar said. “Every time I turned around, it was a no-win situation. If I say what I feel … I would always get 50 percent of the Van Halen fans saying, ‘Right on, you rule.’ Then the haters would dog me like, ‘You’re always dogging Van Halen.’ I’m going to shut up. They get their wish. We’ll see what happens when it happens — if it happens.”

Here is the deal though, it will not happen and is “not even a thought” according to promoters of Van Halen “There is no way in hell man, you think we want to go through that again, he has constantly burned the band and talked so much s$%t, thanks but no thanks. He can do his thing within his little circle (meaning Hagars new band ‘The Circle’).” They go on to tell us: “Look we understand that Hagar’s voice is stronger than David’s now but David is happy to be a part of something great and not crying over percentages or causing problems.”

So there ya go folks a Hagar reunion is not looking like it will ever happen, so don’t believe the hype on social media.

Here is one of the Van Halen kicks that made them a household name with original vocalist David Lee Roth kicking it like they are currently:

Here is the band at the 2015 Billboard Awards Show:

  • Arion316

    I call bullshit source speaking for bothers

    • Our sources seem to always be right, this one will be as well ;)

      • Arion316

        Let’s only hope not, Roth voice can’t sustain another tour.

        • Totally agree as we are very much into the music scene and love Van Halen. But from what we are told by our promoter contact that is in fact working with the band right now. Sammy has left a bad taste in the VH brand mouth. Let’s hope the guy is wrong for sure but he was very adamant about it and that the issue was even a discussion most recently.

          • Kevin Jones

            Lets don’t hope the guy is wrong. The vast majority of Van Halen fans have no desire to see this guy back in Van Halen. Dave was instrumental in building Van Halen and he should ride off into the sunset with Ed and Alex as they call it a career.

          • Arion316

            Such a tired debate, that’s fine and it’s your opinion and apparently you speak on behalf of the majority. I’m here with 3 huge Van Halen fans that love Roth too but NOW want Sammy to tour with them. Doesn’t mean Sammy was or is better, just prefer him in 2016 over Roth.

          • Kevin Jones

            Hagar really should have thought about this during the 10 year long Ed bashing he’s engaged in. Bottom line is that he has bred an enormous amount of contempt amongst about 95% of the Classic Van Halen fans I know. I would vomit if he were to rejoin the band – literally. I suppose there may be some people who view it as either/or but given the dramatic difference in the music and the fact that he cannot stfu about Van Halen, I really can’t understand how.

          • Chris Wagnon

            How does any Van Halen fan want to go back to the ballad era?

          • Arion316

            Forget the ballads. I’d love to hear these songs LIVE again someday with Eddie playing them.. 5150, Summer Night, Naturally Wired, Cabo Wabo, Get up, Judgement Day, Top Of World, Poundcake, Runaround, Amsterdam, Mine all mine, Black and Blue.

          • Chris Wagnon

            But with Hagar you always get the ballads as well as three or four of his mediocre solo songs. I’ve seen them seven times (three with Hagar, four with Roth). Eddie is much better and meaner when he’s playing the original catalog.

      • Josh Corrington

        I call bullshit right there..

  • VAiN

    Fake… Why would someone close to the band take a dig at Dave’s voice?

    • Wicked Threat

      How in the hell is what they reported wrong? Everyone knows David almost has no voice anymore and Sammy still sounds strong https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOHLG2P-7_M I hope to god they work out the crap and just get it done!

      • Kevin Jones

        Oh boy… The height of irony that you link a love song, which is one of the things at the very root of most CVH fans’ dislike of Hagar. You really should check some recent performances of the circle or whatever he calls his band these days. He sounds like crap on a couple of recent ones I’ve heard. It’s called Father Time.

      • Chris Wagnon

        Screw that light rock fluff.

      • jack

        Sammy’s voice is still strong? Have you not heard these embarrassments from this past year?

        https://youtu.be/I5r7mebZpvo

        https://youtu.be/LUfZc0kKQq4

        C’mon man, Sam sounds like shit.

      • Ari M. Eden

        but his songs suck

  • DaRipper_69

    Sammy will not tour with VH it indeed will not happen. He even did an interview with RS on the issue saying he would feel like a hypocrite if he did because of all he has said with his displeasure http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/sammy-hagar-if-i-joined-van-halen-right-now-id-feel-like-a-hypocrite-20151008. So I am betting they are right on point. And good Sammy can suck it! David, needs to ride off into the sunset with the band like Kevin Jones said.

  • Mark Thompson

    Who is the quote credited to? not that it really matters?

  • Ge Lopz

    Hagaritas fans is a kinda of a delusional people.
    NO, SPAMMY IS NOT GOING BACK TO VAN HALEN!
    No Bozo! No RonaldMCHagar again! No, thanks.
    If you don´t believe it, it´s not our problem. It´s yours.

  • Britney

    David is and always will be Van Halen in my eyes. Sammy did nothing but cry cry cry all the time. They need to end with David at the helm and simply go down in history as one of the best groups ever.

  • Damn that was ugly… good find!

  • Chris Wagnon

    That quote from the “promotional source” sounds like something Alex Van Halen would say.

    • Jewls

      That’s what I was thinking

  • Sean Keenan

    When ever they say no chance it usually happens quite soon after that. Summer tour 2016! Ed has to miss playing more than half his catalogue…Dave can’t come close to doing those songs and Sammy can do all of Dave’s songs. I LOVE Dave era but I still think this will happen. Taking wagers…who’s in!

    • Chris Wagnon

      Sammy sucks at doing the old songs. They sound so contrived and generic when he does them. Huge difference between singing a song and owning it. Hagar just doesn’t bring the attitude the way Roth does.

      • Sean Keenan

        Agree…but have you heard Dave lately…It’s kinda painful. I love Dave era…not a fan of Van Hagar….just see the writing on the wall.

        • Chris Wagnon

          I’ve seen them four times since 07 including most recently in July, no Roth isn’t the same as 1981, but he’s holding his own on most songs. And he always brings out the best in Eddie who’s at his best playing the old school catalog before he got into the keyboards.

    • Kevin Jones

      Sean, I recommend you listen to the clips posted above before you prop up Hagar as some superior vocalist. He’s lost a LOT as evidenced by the clips. I’d MUCH rather hear Dave st 75% singing Classic Van Halen than Hagar at 78% singing the stuff they did with him. Any day of the week

      .

      • Sean Keenan

        I hear ya

  • Markis Anthony

    After the book Hagar released where he threw Eddie under the bus + constant shit slinging over the years afterwards he must really be delusional. Hell Mitch Malloy has a better chance of being in VanHalen than Samantha Hagar ever will at this point ever again! Go mix some beach rum and ride off into the sunset Hagar. You pissed your legacy away when you left in 2004, and followed it up with that money grab book and shit charade of insults towards the band for years afterwards. Youre done, over. Move on and resume your bowling alley tour. Diamond Dave and VanHalen forever baby.

  • Mark Laechel

    I think this article is total B.S. All the man did was wish EVH some good vibes. Then they took a seperate interview from Sammy to fan some flames. I think the media is just looking to get something going for some ratings.

    • Jewls

      Are you fucking retarded? They clearly say “don’t believe the hype” that their could possibly be a makeup and tour with Sammy. Because if you pay attention to social media there is a buzz about a possible reconciliation with Sammy to tour with them. Next time use your eyes and read the post before you comment on it.

      • Mark Laechel

        Listen up “Jewis” and before you start snapping like a bitch with your panties in a twist: Its bullshit that these articles will post sensational and then ride the fence and pull back. Then dont write the article. This article IS B.S. Now dont make me get in a car and come slap you.

  • buford

    Best news I’ve heard all year. Let’s Roth ‘n Roll. That quote from the band is the brutal to honest truth about Sammy. I like Sammy Solo and Montrose, but I never liked the AOR Van Halen version with Sammy. It’s best left in the time it existed with all the cock jocks and brainless cheerleaders.

  • Scott Clement

    50% come on Sam! It’s not that the true die hard fans don’t like Sammy or the music they made its the amazing catalog of music they made with Dave that never could of been matched hearing 4 classic tunes and 14 Sammy tunes just doesn’t excite me and that’s how a reunion concert would go no unchained. Running with the devil. I’m the one etc…. No deals!)

  • Ari M. Eden

    Thank God!

  • Ge Lopz

    VH with Hagar is BORING. Just take a look at this pic: Look at EVH, AVH and MA faces! Boring. Hertbroken. Tired. This is ‘van hagar’. Not VAN HALEN.
    Van Halen without DLR it´s like The Rolling Stones without Mick Jagger.

  • Josh Corrington

    Sorry if I want to question your “sources close to the band “, or “promoters of Van Halen” It’s not that I don’t believe that quote was spoken. It’s just I think you’re full of shit..

  • dee cee

    No Dave, No Van Halen as we know and love it. But with that said, blind sources don’t add up to much except let down. Nothing against showbizpy or what not. And I’d rather VH call it quits than go back to Hagar.

  • Brian

    You people are all a bunch of hypocrites!! You bash Sammy for sh*t talking VH but say nothing about all the bashing of Micheal Anthony the VH brothers did!! Until they apologize to mike and admit how much of their sound came from him, they can all go down the tubes!!!

    • Chris Wagnon

      Maybe you missed Hagar’s book of lies.

  • Leon Truskowki

    Sammy Hagar voice is stronger that old man David no hair Roth. we want Sammy back David is nothing but an old broken down man.

    • Chris Wagnon

      Whose we? The ballad loving Hagar crowd that leaves When it’s Love on repeat?

  • Leon Truskowki

    I agree ! This was not no spokes person for the band. Sammy is back now. They don’t want bald David Lee Roth in band. Like Sammy said its 5150 time!!!!!!!

  • bill berdixman

    Sorry Douche lee Roth is more interested in his dance party…then van halen. The Douche. Lee Roth lemmings can squeal all they want….the guy sucks…can’t sing….has the same pathetic act….and is as bald as their balls that they have their mom shave.

    • Chris Wagnon

      Funny, they’ve done pretty well for themselves their last three tours. At least they’re not playing ribfests and small time casinos like Hagar.

      • bill berdixman

        David Lee Roth Concert Setlist at Naperville Ribfest 2005 …
